Pearl Brewery's Échale! Latino Music Estyles; Spring Series Closing - Friday, May 9



 "Playing for the first time in the United States, DMK, a Depeche Mode cover band and YouTube sensation from Bogota, Colombia, will kick-off the last Échale series. The band, consisting of a father and his two adorable children, has become a viral sensation with nearly four million YouTube views and are known for their signature covers of the revered electronic English band. 

Chicha Libre is a Brooklyn-based band that creates mix-up covers of forgotten Chicha classic songs with French-tinged originals and reinterpretations of 70s pop classics. Based in Xonacatlan, Mexico, headliners Sonido San Francisco combine the subtleness of cumbia and Colombian fold, and the power behind Mexican cumbia and urban electronic music.

The Pearl Park amphitheater seats roughly 1,000 and Pearl invites latecomers to bring law chairs and blankets if seating is scarce. Pearl is located 300 Pearl Parkway in San Antonio, Texas. Parking will be available onsite and at the Kohler garage.

If you missed the last Échale Latino Music Estyles on April 4 with Brownout Presents: Brown Sabbath and Bombasta, Red Bull Panamérika has released Bombasta’s live recordings from Échale.

Dick Dale with King Pelican at Sam's Burger Joint, Wednesday April 16th

"The Dick Dale Phenomenon. His style is something different and unique. Since his first appearances Balboa, Ca. at the famed Rendezvous Ballroom, he has set and broken attendance records everywhere he's performed. His appearances at the Rendezvous Ballroom broke every existing record for the Ballroom by drawing capacity crowds of over four thousand screaming dancing fans every weekend each night down on the Balboa peninsula.

Dick Dale invented surf music in the 1950's. Not the '60's as is commonly believed. He was given the title "King of the Surf Guitar" by his fellow surfers with whom he surfed with from sun-up to sun-down. He met Leo Fender the guitar and amplifier Guru and Leo asked Dale to play his newly creation, the Fender Stratocaster Electric Guitar. The minute Dale picked up the guitar, Leo Fender broke into uncontrolled laughter and disbelief, he was watching Dale play a right handed guitar upside down and backwards, Dale was playing a right handed guitar left handed and changing the chords in his head then transposing the chords to his hands to create a sound never heard before."

New Orleans Hustlers Brass Band at Sunken Garden Theatre, Sunday April 13th

"A Taste of New Orleans: Of the hundreds of thousands of New Orleans residents displaced by Hurricane Katrina in 2005, many were musicians rooted in the deep tradition of the city’s brass bands. Some brass players who moved to Houston formed the New Orleans Hustlers Brass Band, a classic Crescent City-style band that will play in and out of crowds, on the street as a second line, at a wedding or a funeral. Although they relocated to Texas, their sound is one that never left the “504.”
